and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
to "the new york times," the newly elected pontiff privately supported civil unions for gay couples when the archbishop of buenos aires in 2010. then he publicly opposed gay marriage and went against the government of argentina in so doing. but his willingness to accept ip as compromise if true offers insight into how he might change the church. "outfront" tonight, father edward beck, host of "the sunday mass," good to see you again. we talked about this getting ready for when we were -- what was going to be the next pope. so senior vatican receives say we have no comment on this. we're not going to say whether he supported civil unions for gay couples or not. what's your take? >> listen, it wasn't so private, there was a bishop's meeting in 2010 of all of the bishops in argentina. he was the head of the bishop's conference. it looked like same sex marriage was going to pass in argentina. so as a compromise, he said we want to come out for human rights. let's support same sex civil union. for the first time in six years they voted him down. he got everything else through as head of that

. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> oh, that did not go over too well with karl rove, the man known as the architect of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large nu
in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congressional election was closer than she expected and democrats are hoping to beat her this time. >> we certainly appreciate the response. it doesn't seem to back up the claim, though, that this health care will literally kill women, children and senior citizens. a lot of the things she's claiming right now about the government will be able to select who gets care or not, you could say about insurance companies right now, choosing who gets coverage or not. >> that's a great point. it doesn't back that up. she and other republicans, you know, have argued for years they believe obama care will ultimately mean people will lose their insurance and their health will be in danger. of course, she took that to a whole other level by saying that they would literally be killed, which you're right, she doesn't address in the statement. >> dana, appreciat
of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. i mean we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c. and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for purposes of federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> because it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex families pay taxes and don't get the same benefits and the issue with doma really gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kids i would like them to be born in a post-doma united states. >> still, california is one of only a handful of states that gives most of the benefits of marriage to same-sex couples and domestic partnerships. one question is whether any ruling by the court on california could affect all of those other states in the same way. fred? >> thanks so much, joe johns in washington. >>> bill clinton signed doma into law when he was president. now he's asking the u.s. supreme c
into the ballot box as a politician. there's a general election coming up here in pakistan. the first time potentially that one democratic government would hand over to another democratic government, believe it or not, for the first time in country's history. he believes that he's going to be a key player. but given the muted response he's had to his landing here so far and very little media coverage, it would seem that they have an uphill battle to make that race to the front so to speak here in the election coming up here. he -- as we said, he was unchallenged in the past, but now he wants to try and challenge all the big boys in pakistan's politics. well, it remains to be seen if he can manage that. >> well, that's the thing. he comes back and says he's coming back to in his words save the country. and yet he hasn't got a seat. he hasn't got much of a chance of getting 170 seats in the election one would imagine. meanwhile, what are the charges he's facing? and then as we said he's a guy that the taliban wants to take out. >> yes. absolutely. a couple of reality checks there aren't ther
have a pretty good chance? >> she has a so-so chance. the primary election within her party was sunday. so that's over with. but what she's doing right now is her own party to get reinstated on the ballot. she says she was discriminated against, a victim of slander. and there's no proof she did what is alleged, she should be allowed to run. >> that's the right point. none of this has been proven, how does she get banned? on what ground? >> the mexican system is not banning her. what happened is her own party after learning of these allegations, this is the p.a.n., most conservative party in mexico, the party itself said because of the allegations we would not like you to run and essentially stopped her from running and took her name off the ballot. but again the general election is in july and she still has a chance if the court system, the judicial system in mexico moves fast enough. >> so she's saying -- or they're saying she would simply be a distraction and maybe she needs to think about backing it up. >> i had an opportunity to speak with her. and what she was telling me is, liste
all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria

of how this case all got started. you'll recall, suzanne, when president obama was first elected in 2008, you covered that race, he was elected but then proposition 8 also passed in california. and that outlawed the right for same sex couples to marry, took it away from them in that state. and so you have a story that really starts in hollywood with rob rhiner of all people deciding, oh, my god, this can't occur and he and his friends recruiting ted olson and ted olson recruiting david on this case and making it through the california courts. and now to the supreme court. >> yeah. it's a fascinating story. gloria, thank you so much. appreciate it as always. >> sure. >>> the crisis might have been averted, cyprus made a deal for about a $13 billion bailout. that of course should be good news. we'll see if it's good or not. zain asher in new york, zain, take a look at the dow here. i understand it's down. investors not all that happy with the deal. back and forth a little bit. >> i mean, yeah, that seems to be the case. the u.s. stocks here started out strong initially, but they're now low

community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
